The Deception

without giving a part of oneself… one who states they are giving love… is suffering from an illusion… of self deception, not of love for souls and love are one and the same.

    Yowza! Dripping with truth, Moses. Selfishness and love can't coexist. Enjoyed. Gwendolen

    Dear John, my sister needs to read this poem. She is still living in the illusion without giving anything of herself to anyone. Very moving poem! If this is for Brian's contest, I know it will rank high. Love and Christmas blessings, Carolyn
